C.J. Spiller gained 24 yards on eight carries and added another 10 yards on two receptions on two targets in Sunday's loss in Washington.
With Mark Ingram getting dinged up in the first half (he would later return), Spiller's workload increased, and the eight carries represent a season-high. Still, even when Ingram was sidelined, Spiller was forced to split carries with Tim Hightower, who actually out-carried Spiller 11-8. While Khiry Robinson's season-ending injury gives his value a slight boost, it's becoming readily apparent that the New Orleans Saints do not appear willing to give Spiller anything close to resembling a consistent workload, which severely limits his value. The Saints will be on bye in Week 11 before taking on Houston in Week 12.
C.J. Spiller gained eight yards on two carries and caught one of his two targets for two yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans. He also only played on six of the New Orleans Saints ' 76 offensive snaps, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Spiller's role was expected to grow in the wake of Khiry Robinson's season-ending leg injury, but instead, Spiller saw a significant decrease in playing time in Week 9, as the Saints leaned heavily on Mark Ingram. There's been no indication that Spiller suffered any sort of injury, so his usage is perplexing for fantasy owners. Unless something else comes to light this week, Spiller will be a high-risk, high-reward option in a favorable matchup against Washington in Week 10.
With Khiry Robinson suffering a season-ending leg injury, C.J. Spiller could inherit a slightly bigger role, according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com.
Spiller signed with the New Orleans Saints this offseason and was expected to serve as the team's third-down back, but with Robinson running well and Mark Ingram unexpectedly making an impact in the passing game, his playing time has been limited. Ingram's injury, however, could open the door for Spiller to take on a larger role, as both a runner and as a receiver. While Ingram is expected to continue to garner the majority of the touches out of the Saints' backfield, given his explosive playmaking potential, Spiller is worth a look in many leagues.
C.J. Spiller carried four times for 21 yards in Sunday's game against the Giants. He also caught two of his four targets for another 15 yards and a touchdown in the 52-49 win.
While the 28-year-old found the end zone for the second time as a Saint, he was once again limited to just six touches and 36 total yards, as the New Orleans Saints continue to spread the ball around. Spiller's involvement is unlikely to increase for as long as Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson are still in the picture, and he should not be considered as a weekly touchdown threat. The Saints will host the Texans in Week 9.
New Orleans Saints running back C.J. Spiller gained 16 yards on four carries and caught six passes on six targets for 32 yards in the Week 7 win over the Colts.
Spiller's usage remained low, as he played only 20 of 88 offensive snaps, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Still, the ten touches were a season-high, and Spiller was at least efficient with the ball in his hands, as his 48 total yards were the second-most he's had in any game this year.
Still, he has been a massive disappointment this year for Fantasy owners. But if the Saints can find away to get him the ball around 10 times per game, he may still have some value, particularly in PPR leagues.
